That's how I spent my day today, finally getting things done that I had "put off till tomorrow". I'm very good at that!
Firstly, these lovely heavily embroidered Crinoline Lady cushions needed cushion pads and then some gentle stitching along the top edge to make them up. Tick.
I finally sewed the corners and glued the gimp on this little footstool . . . Tick.
This beautiful 1980s Pollyanna Pickering print needed a new frame and we chose this lovely Sky Blue for the mounting board. I don't really want to sell it, so if it doesn't go, I shan't mind too much. Tick.
This old narrow loom Welsh blanket needed hemming, which I did recently, and also a couple of darns. Tick.
The top of the table we got yesterday was very pale and wan from being in the sunlight, so my husband gave it some tlc and a couple of coats of oil really brought the colour out. Tick.
Still to do:
I have two lovely and skillfully embroidered Crinoline Lady chairbacks to turn into cushion covers.
Amongst my souvenirs I found a little tablecloth which an old lady had started off neatly enough, but then eyesight or dementia had spoiled it, so I am unpicking it and re-embroidering . . . Still at the unpicking stage now.
